Pain Management

Acupuncture Session

     Approximately 20.4% of Americans suffer with chronic pain.  Many of these people are over treated with highly addictive opioids or try to ease some of the pain with over-the-counter pain medicine.  In China they were treating pain for thousands of years using acupuncture, cupping, gua-sha, and other traditional therapies.  Today, Americans are finding that acupuncture does work!  It does alleviate both chronic and acute pain, requiring less need for opioids and over-the-counter medicines.

     Acupuncture is not a replacement for western medicine it works in conjunction with western medicine.  In some cases, it may even help western medicine work more effectively.  You may

wonder what types of pain may be helped with acupuncture.  Acupuncture can treat back pain, neck pain, headaches, knee and shoulder pain, sprains, and strains, among others.

Keep in mind acupuncture is centuries old and was used for the treatment of pain long before there was medication to control it.  If you are looking to help relieve pain acupuncture can help.











  • Does it hurt?
    This is usually the first question asked when people think about acupuncture. There is not a yes or no answer. Everyone is different while some feel nothing others may feel a light pinch but, in general, pain is not usually reported when doing cosmetic acupuncture.
  • What can cosmetic acupuncture treat?
    Our Albuquerque patients elect to get cosmetic acupuncture to help reduce the look of fine lines, wrinkles, bags under the eyes, to help the skin look smoother, help reduce the look of sagging skin in the face and the neck. By helping to bring the body's healing resources such as, collagen and elastin, to the area being treated, it helps to make the skin feel and look more youthful.
  • How long does it take to see results?
    Results can be noticed in as few as one appointment, but that is not the norm. To see the best results 10 treatments over 10-12 weeks is required. Dedication to beauty is required for this treatment, timing is important, therefore we suggest not to miss or skip appointments.
  • How will I look after my entire series have been completed?
    In our Corrales clinic we will take before and after photos of the area being treated to see what results have been achieved. We can not tell you exactly what you will look like after the series of treatments, because everyone is unique and will see results according to treatment response and after care of skin. Skin care and beauty are lifetime commitments.
